Word on the street has it that Samsung could eventually announce their S-Cloud service by the time August 2012 rolls around – at least, according to a report by ETNews. Samsung and Apple are not exactly the best of friends at the moment with lawsuits against one another being filed all over the planet, and the S-Cloud service can be seen as Samsung’s strategic counterattack against Apple’s iCloud. It is rather unfortunate that the S-Cloud service is still not ready for public consumption just yet, although iCloud has already been in the market for a fair amount of time already.
Samsung S-Cloud’s infrastructure was developed by Samsung SDS, and it was discovered that the infrastructure developed by the subsidiary went sour, as it was unsuitable for global market. This means some clean up needs to be done – and the Samsung Media Solution Center (SMSC) wants to hook up with a commercially available solution for stability issues, and are currently perusing through options from KT and other virtualization and software companies.
